Nanoindentation of polysilicon and single crystal silicon: molecular dynamics simulation and experimental validation.
(Institute of Physics, 2014-06-13)
This paper presents novel advances in the deformation behaviour of polycrystalline and single crystal silicon using molecular dynamics (MD) simulation and validation of the same via nanoindentation experiments. In order ...
Atomistic investigation on the structure–property relationship during thermal spray nanoparticle impact.
During thermal spraying, hot particles impact on a colder substrate. This interaction of crystalline copper nanoparticles and copper substrate is modeled, using MD simulation. The quantitative results of the impacts at ...
Toward a systemic view to cost overrun causation in infrastructure projects: a review and implications for research.
Infrastructure cost overruns receive significant amount of attention in the academic literature as well as the popular press. The methodological weaknesses in the dominant approaches adopted to explain cost overrun causation ...
Effective feedback of whole-life data to the design process.
(Glasgow Caledonian University, School of the Built & Natural Environment, 2003)
Key activities of the implementation of whole-life costing (WLC) as a management tool during the occupancy stage are outlined. Then, the logic of a novel whole-life management approach is designed around two recently ...
Refinement in response to validation.
Knowledge-based systems (KBSs) are being applied in ever increasing numbers. In parallel with the development of knowledge acquisition tools is the demand for mechanisms to assure their quality, particularly in safety ...
Evaluating GraysNet: an online PDP tool for use in an art and design context.
Personal development planning (PDP) is a phrase that encompasses a number of activities including reflecting on learning, recording of achievement and career planning. Embedding these activities is a goal widely shared ...
Thinking through craft.
(Oxford University Press., 2009-03)
Renewables: solar energy needs focus.
Solar photovoltaic (PV) has seen a tremendous growth in the last decade, with a global cumulative installation exceeding 177 GW by the end of 2014. Despite this, PV only contributes to approximately 1.1% of the world's ...
Towards context-sensitive information inference.
Humans can make hasty, but generally robust judgements about what a text fragment is, or is not, about. Such judgements are termed information inference. By drawing on theories from non-classical logic and applied cognition, ...
The impact of computer aided architectural design programs on conceptual design in an educational context.
Little research has been undertaken concerning the manner in which students use computer aided architectural design (CAAD) programs for conceptual design. The research aim was to explore the potential impact of CAAD ...
